Your data is not completely safe in the kind of policy that WhatsApp has brought. However, it has been said by WhatsApp that the company will not tamper with your personal data. But still WhatsApp shares a lot of data with its parent company Facebook and Instagram. At the same time, Signal is considered one of the most secure apps in the world. User data is not shared in this app. The Signal app does not ask for your personal data. Apart from this, your chat backup on the signal does not send to online storage. Your data is saved in your phone. The special thing is that the signal has many more safety features such as it has a feature called Data Linked to You, so that no one can take a screenshot of the chat messages. Another special feature of the signal is that the old messages disappear automatically here. Like Whatsapp, no one can add you by forming a group here. In this, invoice has to be sent first. Signal has a Relay Calls feature, so that your call goes to the Signal server, the advantage is that your IP address is not known to the person receiving the call. If you want, you can also set a PIN in it for safety. No one will be able to use your account with this.
